Dehaan Rahman

Community Planning Fellow • 2023

University/College City College


Dehaan Rahman is pursuing a Master of Architecture from the City College of New York. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering from the same school. This summer he interned at The Williams Sale Partnership Ltd. (WSP) transportation department, drafting details for Amtrak stations in Baltimore and Portland, to make them more ADA accessible. He has also worked on the Harlem Mapping Initiative, through City College, locating community resources and 3D modeling them to highlight patterns and disparities in the area. With this fellowship, Dehaan intends to explore more about the community-based aspect of the rezoning process. His experience in the NYC Department of City Planning has made him familiar with the administrative side of the ULURP process. The Community Planning Fellowship would allow him to collaborate with locals and stakeholders involved in rezoning. This is an essential path for Dehaan’s long-term goal of innovating public spaces to become more adaptable and accommodating to those who are physically disabled and neurodiverse. In his free time, Dehaan enjoys running, hiking, and 3D Printing.
